Ranger Luis Recalde helps protects two nature reserves

Reserve ranger: Luis Recalde
Country: Ecuador
Partner: Fundación EcoMinga

An accomplished photographer, ranger Luis is passionate about capturing the wildlife that he works to protect and once photographed animal behaviour that was new to science.

Working with his brother Jesus, he safeguards EcoMinga's nature reserves high in the eastern Andes of Ecuador from illegal hunting, logging and environmental damage.

He also plants trees and regenerates areas of the Cerro Candelaria Reserve as part of a reforestation programme by World Land Trust (WLT).

Luis said: “Monkeys and birds will soon be able to use the new forests that we have made!”
